New York, Here We Are!

Well, we made it to the Big City! It was one LONG day. Trent and I flew through the night and got into New York at 7:00 am. Jake met us at the airport and took us to his crib, where Trent and I crashed for a couple of hours. When we woke up I was sooo excited to head out and go shopping with the Jensen girls!

Trent's favorite place-Canal Street!!! Look at the bag in my hand, I had already purchased some treasures! LOVED IT!

The subway ride. By the end of the night I was ready to have a car! That is until I saw the traffic again and then the subway wasn't so bad.

5 Beauties! ;)
It was such an awesome feeling to actually see the Statue of Liberty in real life.

Here is how the boys enjoyed the ride. Doesn't Trent look excited to see the Statue of Liberty???

We love movies at our house and this bull is in the movie "Hitch." However, the position we used for the pic isn't exactly how you see the Bull in the movie.

The Hershey store.
If anyone knows me you know I love Hershey's chocolate. It is sad, but I could probably really eat the amount of chocolate we are holding in no time!

Times Square!
Yet another fun thing to see in real life!

Teri was sooo nice to get us all tickets to see The Phantom of the Opera! I loved it! The phantom's voice was the best! Such a fun night! Thanks Teri!

All Trent has wanted to do on our vacation is go running with Jake, so I had to get a picture of them before they left this morning. Look at those 2 good lookin' Jensen boys!

So. That was our first day. I am loving doing nothing and everything at the same time. It is so nice not to have to break up fights, take someone potty, clean up toys, change diapers, wipe noses, make meals, and, well, take care of kids. I am loving my vacation from real life, but I do miss my hoard. Thanks to ALL who have sacrificed their own sanity to give Trent and I a break.
I am sure I will post some more during the boys' next run!!!!
And Happy Birthday Luke!!!
